Not all radiators have taps or drain plugs. They began being deleted as methanol winter antifreeze was replaced by glycol based year-round coolant in order to discourage kerb-side mechanics from the habit of draining antifreeze at the end of winter. For a while there was hardly a drain plug anywhere but as cooling systems became more complex they began to reappear though are far from universal...

Generally the valve is at the bottom of the radiator at the far left or right side but NOT along the edge. The valve may be on the front of the radiator, but will more likely be on the side facing back toward the engine compartment. By the time you need to open it, it will be discolored, very dark, and will be hard to see. You will need to apply some leverage to get it to start turning, but only at first. Be careful - if you apply too much torque all at once and slip, whatever tool you are using can slip and puncture the radiator.

2007 crysler Sebring where is radiator drain hole

If no pet **** for draining, just remove bottom radiator hose. But be sure coolant is cooled off, or you will get burnt. Some chryslers have a pet **** on the passengers side of radiator. Do not forget to replace bottom hose before refilling. Remove radiator cap so coolant flows from radiator good. God-Bless!

How to flush the cooling system on a 2002 Chevrolet astro van

  • Open pet cock drain valve at bottom of radiator

  • Open top radiator cap

  • Allow to drain into bucket or pan, then dispose of responsibly. This is dangerous to your pets.

  • Then loosen and remove any one radiator hose

    • Introduce a flow of water from a garden hose into a created opening, either the hose or other end.

    • Keep doing this until water is clear coming out opposite end.

    • Then switch, and do that again

  • Remove thermostat

    • Flush out that area

  • The more flushing, and the more areas opened after the initial, the better.

    • Upper and lower radiator hoses

Where do I fine the drain plug on radiator

Usually at the very bottom or bottom side of the radiator. Many newer vehicles no longer have this plug and you must use the lower radiator hose as the drain. Use caution when draining the radiator, remember that pets like the sweet taste of antifreeze and will be poisoned if consumed.

How to change anti-freeze(coolant) on 2003 buick century

Hello, perform the following steps in this order:
NOTE: car should be cool, in park and on non sloped surface.
NEVER leave used coolant in an area where children or pets can gain access, Anti freeze has ethylene glycol which can be lethal to humans and pets. Used coolant should be immediately taken in a sealed container to a local state certified recycler for proper disposal.
1.Raise front end of car, and place one jack stand under frame of car on the inside of each front wheel.
2.Place a 2 gallon (low profile) bucket under the radiator drain plug. The drain plug will be located at the bottom of the radiator.
3.Unscrew the drain plug and let coolant drain into bucket. (It may be necessary to adjust bucket so no coolant leaks onto the ground.
4.After all coolant has drained from the radiator, tighten radiator drain plug finger tight, then 1/8-1/4 of a turn with a wrench.
5.Unscrew radiator cap and begin filling radiator using 50/50
premixed antifreeze solution.
6.Continue adding premixed solution until fluid is just below the top lip of radiator where cap fastens to.
7.Re attach radiator cap and lock into place.
8.Check radiator overflow reservoir and ensure coolant is between add and full, add coolant as required.
